I am lucky enough to call the beautiful and green mountains of Southern Vermont home. In my free time I enjoy hiking, kayaking, star-gazing, plant identifying, listening to funky tunes, and doing crossword puzzles. Having graduated from Colgate University in spring 2010 with a BA in Environmental Biology, I decided to get involved in the SCA to get my hands dirty before applying to graduate programs. Being interested in wetland ecology, I was drawn to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for my first season with the SCA this past summer. I enjoyed planting like a maniac here in Cowles Bog so much that I decided to come back for the fall. I expect this season to be yet another great experience with the SCA!
